6 actions to remember to tap into your FULL POTENTIAL
Before we start, think back to your teen years and early twenties about what you wanted to achieve. Have you achieved any of these dreams? Sadly, this answer to is likely to be ‘no’ because we find it all too easy to settle and think small. However, you are going to learn some tips today that will flip this around so you start thinking big and realizing you’re potential.
Be Brave – When we were children, we used to fill our lives with imaginative stories but where did this go? Somewhere along the way, we lost this ability because we choose to ignore it. Instead, let out your inner creativity and it might just lead you down a new exciting path.
Consider the Alternative – How do you think you will feel in ten year’s time if you’re still doing the same thing because you didn’t think big? If you feel happy with that thought, you may have achieved your dreams. If not, it is time to use this as your motivation. As the saying goes, we regret the actions we didn’t take as opposed to the ones we did.
Your Idea is Viable – With recent advancements in technology, your dream is closer than it has ever been before. Granted, even 30 years ago your idea may have struggled but with infinite resources, you can make it happen. There is no better place to start than today so why not do a little research and get the ball rolling?
Take Risks – Our comfort zone is great because it is the place we find life easy but this doesn’t lead to progression. If you want to achieve your dreams, you have to get used to stepping out of your comfort zone. As long as you are motivated and believe in your ability, you have the tools to succeed.
Think Big – Instead of thinking of good ideas every now and then, get into the habit of thinking up big ideas every single day. Even if you just spend a few minutes at a desk thinking up ideas, you will see progress. Once you decide on a plan, spend those few minutes elaborating and improving. Just a few minutes a day is better than nothing at all.
Listen to Emotions – As we grow older, we listen to our emotions less and less while preferring to look at the negative side of things. As a result, you have to get used to listening to your emotions once more so when you get a positive feeling; you act on it. It is all too easy to become robotic but deciding to be different and go through with ideas that truly excite you.
If you follow these six simple tips, the difference can be quite amazing. Life is a journey that has to be planned by ourselves and if we don’t, we settle for something we have never wanted. Why not be in the unique few who follow through with their dreams and live happily?
